PORTLAND, Ore. — Injuries, an ejection and a dubious record.

The Portland Trail Blazers’ 92-74 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Monday night had a little bit of everything.

Both sides were beset by injuries, with Portland missing starters Wesley Matthews and Nicolas Batum, and Toronto losing starters Andrea Bargnani and Kyle Lowry during the game.

Then Toronto’s Amir Johnson punctuated his ejection from the […]

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Clippers were lacking energy through three quarters. Their backups came in and changed the game again.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah– The pregame talk was about 6-foot-11 centre Enes Kanter making his first career start for the Jazz.

But it was Utah’s “small” lineup that delivered the knockout blow in the second quarter, with the Jazz hitting five 3-pointers in a 3 1/2-minute span to set the tone […]

The Wrap: Holiday Hitlist, Half Court Shots and a Very Happy Birthday

Picture 2

With the team on the tail end of their west coast swing, the social capabilities of the interweb have been keeping us all in one place, many of us staying up past our bedtime, maybe addicted to the high of the back and forth battles or the fourth quarter rattles. I am. And undoubtedly because the #RTZ crew isn’t going anywhere.

Mickael Pietrus Feels Like A New Ferrari

Mickael Pietrus wants you to know his knee is just fine, thank you.

The 30-year-old guard-forward delivered the message in emphatic fashion in Wednesday’s loss to the Kings with the drive and thunderous slam (seen above) as part of a strong 21-point, six-rebound performance.

“That’s what I do, I energize my team,” said Pietrus after Thursday’s Raptors practice in Utah. “That’s what I was doing before my knee surgery. Right know, my knee surgery is behind me and I’m like a brand new Ferrari… I still can fly like MJ!”

Lowry Off To Flying Start With Raptors

It’s not hard to pin down the dominant story line of the Raptors season. A 4-15 record pretty well drowns everything else out. But amidst the flurry of agonizingly close losses you will find a one memorable performance after another from guard Kyle Lowry.

Lowry is assembling the beginnings of an astonishing regular season. He had 34 points and 11 assists in the Raptors loss to Sacramento, Thursday.

A cursory study of Lowry’s numbers stacked up against those of the league’s best point guards reveals the beginning of one of the best […]
